Adopting a Cat
I live by myself and I'm looking to adopt a cat. I grew up with a cat, and I really miss having one around. However, the cat I grew up with generally had at least 1 family member home to keep him company.
My concern getting a new cat for myself is that at the moment financially I am only really able to care for 1 cat, but I am away about 9 hours a day when I work. I'm at home in the mornings and evenings, but not around during the day during the normal work week. In your experiences, can certain cats handle this much time alone?
